Hello, I'm Dee!
I'm now based in Manchester having relocated from Scotland.
Analogue is my thing. I shoot with a few Polaroid cameras, and various medium format holga and lomo cameras using 35mm/120 film. Basically my cameras are very old and sometimes (always!) heavy to carry around, but I tend to get a good mix of different styles each time I shoot.
My background is largely fine arts based - painting & drawing.
My ideas tend to be a little wacky and weird but mostly FUN! My aim is to create something different, and focus on the narrative and content of an image.
I never shoot the same thing twice or repeat ideas.
I love colour. A lot.
I absolutely adore colour and quirkiness, and images that are unique and stand-out from the norm'. I'm inspired by the works of Guy Bourdin, Cindy Sherman, Terry Richardson, Francesca Woodman and Helmut Newton; amongst many others! Music and film are a massive influence on me, and inspire many of my concepts. I'm also slightly in love with David Hockney and Bob Dylan.
I would like to work with people who are a little bit like me - creative, quirky, different, imaginative, and fun. Being open to experimenting and taking risks, also helps. Oh and have a sense of humour, that's mandatory!
I'm fun and friendly and I will make sure you are comfortable and well-looked after when shooting with me. I don't have years and years of experience or fancy gear to dazzle you with. But I do have LOTS of ideas and a massive passion for trying to translate those ideas into great images.
I only shoot TF, so if you want to work with me, just drop me a message. I'm not good with hints.
